Award winning journalist and lyricist Bryan Russo teams up with workhorse punk-rocker Ryan Abbott, to produce a terrific collection of deep-thinking songs that sound like hard-drinking songs. Adding drummer Ryan Jared, to round out the sound, Russo's lyrics recall the snark of Elvis Costello and dry humor of Randy Newman, while Abbott's hooks relentlessly drive this hard-rocking quintessential Americana record.
BOB Says: "In the Key of WTF is a palate cleanser for an audience saturated with the static of televised news commentary, but it also does the trick turned up with your car windows down on a hot August night."
Reviews for In The Key Of WTF!
“Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Journos is not afraid to shake the tree and get their musical hands dirty while having a damn, good time in the process. With witty and snarky content that will either make you laugh or yell, ‘In The Key of WTF’ displays all of these fine qualities. ” - Jimmy Rae, Skope Magazine
“As Journos, they’ve created a fascinating, socially conscious world apart from all previous history, driven by Russo’s insanely insightful, bitingly provocative lyrics (which read as fascinating as they sing) and perhaps the industry’s only dusty Americana vibe informed by defiant, edgy punk sensibilities. ” - Jonathan Widran, Entertainment journalist (L.A. Times, Billboard.com, et.al)
“Bryan Russo is bluesy as hell, like a young Tom Waits or Billy Joel.” - David Ivory, Grammy Nominated Producer
